St. Louis Union Station is a National Historic Landmark of unsurpassed beauty and elegance. Opened in 1894, it was the largest and busiest passenger rail terminal in the world. Troops passed through the “Whispering Arch” on their way to war; families boarded trains bound for untold adventures.
Today, the original terminal’s amazing architecture is a world-class DoubleTree by Hilton hotel.
The Train Shed houses shops, restaurants, entertainment venues, a lake and an entertainment plaza for festivals, concerts and other special events. Explore the building's colorful history and architecture through an award-winning collection of letters, memorabilia and exhibits stationed throughout the structure.
Tour buses should drop passengers at the main entrance on Market Street; buses may park on 20th Street at no charge.
